Handout Overview

Although Japan is a world-leader when it comes to the provision of paternity leave, (a very generous one year), in reality only 6 percent of eligible fathers took child care leave. Furthermore, over 70 per cent of men who did take paid-leave, took less than 2 weeks. A Japanese government commissioned study concluded that the majority of new fathers wanted to take child care leave but were concerned that it might be a burden on their co-workers, cause them financial difficulties, or even affect their chances of promotion.
